Ankara – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday condemned his United States (US) counterpart Joe Biden for approval of arms sales to Israel, Xinhua news agency reported.
The US president was “writing history with bloody hands in this incident where Gaza was attacked disproportionately,” Erdogan said at a press conference elaborating on recent clashes between Israelis and Palestinians.
“You have forced us to say this. We can’t stay silent on this anymore,” he added.
“Palestinian lands are being washed with blood and cruelty. You are also supporting this,” Erdogan noted.
Earlier in the day, the US government reportedly approved the sale of US$735 million in precision-guided weapons to Israel. – Bernama
